GOP leaders asked Foley to resign



The House Republican leadership asked Foley to resign Friday morning after news reports about his emails to a teen-age boy who had served as a page, Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite said Friday evening.

Brown-Waite is a close friend of Foley's who said she was disappointed by the revelations but said Foley made the right decision.

Referring to the emails, she said, "What Mark did was absolutely wrong. The Republican majority was absolutely right in saying we want him to resign."
